What is public liability?
Public liability is a term to describe who is liable for people’s safety in a public place such as parks, government buildings and so on. These places should be covered by public liability insurance. Usually, a public liability case involves the local council as they maintain such premises. If you are unsure if your accident or injury falls in the public liability category it is best to give us a call.
Public liability is an extension of personal injuries and a broader term to injuries such as slips, trips and falls, differing from Occupiers liability due to the location and the manner it happens. Public liability happens on public property such as your every day street, council owned parks, council run gyms and on roads. If you were driving then please look at our road traffic accident page.
